Quagga/Zebra Mussels Alert


Help protect Lake Elsinore against this invasive and costly hitchhiker!

Quagga/Zebra Mussels in California waters could result in an environmental and economic disaster. They can cause a shift in native species and disrupt the ecological balance of entire bodies of water. The mussels clog water pipes, coat piers and ruin boat motors. Transferring a boat from an infested water to another water could spread the mussels.

Quagga_Mussels_HandLake Elsinore is not infested with the quagga mussel and we need the public's help to keep the lake free of this invasive species! 

Please inspect your boat before launching.  Do not launch your boat in the lake if you discover quagga mussels. For more information visit California Department of Fish & Game or call (866) 440-9530.
